Details:
...CRITICAL RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES EXPECTED ON SATURDAY FOR MUCH
OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN MINNESOTA...
A cold front is expected to sweep southeast across the region on
Saturday. While scattered showers and thunderstorms can be
expected tonight ahead of the front, the precipitation amounts
will not be sufficient to make an impact on overly dry fuels. The
front will also bring in much drier dewpoints for Saturday
afternoon while highs are expected to climb to around 90 degrees.
This will force relative humidity values to bottom out between 20
and 25 percent. While wind speeds are expected to increase to 15
to 20 mph from the northwest, they are expected to fall just short
of critical levels. Nevertheless, the low humidities and
generally drier fuels may contribute to an increased fire danger
for Saturday.
The combination of low relative humidity, warm temperatures and
generally dry fuels can contribute to dangerous burning
conditions. Burning outdoors is not advised on Saturday. Dispose
of any cigarettes responsibly. Refer to fire officials for any
outdoor burning restrictions.
